PHOENIX, Ari. -(Ammoland.com)- In a symbolic showing of American firearms pride, 1,000 shooters gathered Monday at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility and, together, pulled the triggers on Henry Golden Boy Silver rifles at the same time.
It was shortly after 2:30 p.m. when the participants, some from as far away as Florida, walked up to the firing line and stood shoulder-to-shoulder to simultaneously fire two rounds from the lever-action .22-caliber rifles, custom-made and engraved by Henry Repeating Arms.
The Henry 1,000-Man Shoot, presented by the National Rifle Association, raised more than $1 million for the NRA.
The history-making event also put BASF in the spotlight as one of only a few publicly-operated shooting facilities in the nation capable of hosting an event of this scale.
“It was not an easy task to find a facility that could accommodate 1,000 shooters and several hundred instructors and volunteers, let alone want to take on such an undertaking,” said Anthony Imperato, president of Henry Repeating Arms.
“Henry Repeating Arms would like to extend a big, heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Arizona Game and Fish and its Ben Avery Shooting Facility for stepping up to the plate to host the Henry 1,000-Man Shoot, presented by the NRA. Now we know why it’s one of the (city’s) Points of Pride.”
The facility is a City of Phoenix “Point of Pride” and has received a five-star rating from the National Association of Shooting Ranges.
BASF is funded by the revenues generated by user fees and federal dollars appropriated through the Pittman-Robertson Act.
